An official outlet of something distinctly French Quarter. The House of Voodoo sells odds and ends, stacked to the brim, in a semi-decrepit, derelict locale that caters more to tourists, but also sells some real magic to devotees. It is a fantastic experience, but a little knowledge beforehand will help you a lot. I like the look and feel, but it may off-put some. There are numerous alters throughout, so look - do not touch, and ask for it - again, do not touch. This should be treated the same way as a church or other religious institution, despite its size, location, and commercial appeal. Pictures are generally frowned upon. However, despite these warnings the staff is intensely knowledgeable (though according to some other posts, maybe a bit intimidating), and will be more than willing to walk and talk you through your specific needs, given you treat them with respect and the courtesy you expect. This was a highlight of my trip, I felt it resembled the complex intermixing of cultures, values, and history that the French Quarter contains. Definitely worth a visit, and in my mind, one of the best, most authentic places to buy, as well.

I enjoyed it. I think the staff are rude to the tourists because of how many of them treat people's religions and cultures. To many it's strange and supernatural but to many other people worldwide this is their religion and it deserves the same respect as EVERY OTHER FAITH! I saw how a lot of the tourists were behaving and if I worked there I'd be rude too. Also, a lot of those tourists are abnoxious and drunk and get in the way of people that actually know what they are shopping for and are actually spending money. Many of the tourists just come in and touch everything, laugh at voodoo dolls, and talk about how "spooky and creepy" everything is. How'd you feel if someone random came into your church started taking pictures during your service and was treating your faith like some sort of exotic and unexplored taboo? Just have respect for others. Honestly, the staff is nice and knowledgeable if you are asking educated and respectful questions. They are respectful, when you are respectful just act like you have some sense. And if you're not gonna buy anything get out. Stop being all upset because you can't take pictures and touch altars and stop making a mockery of people's religions and cultures. No you can't touch the alters, offerings, or take pictures. Would you take the money from the basket in church, would you desecrate Holy Water, run up during a mass and touch the bread and wine on the altar of you aren't a priest ? No, so what is wrong with some people ? Also, people are complaining about the setup and display of the shop? It isn't Walmart; it's not gonna be all labeled by aisle. Ask if you can't find something and more than likely if you know what you want you won't have too much trouble finding it. Anywho, It's a decent place if you know what you're doing and what you're looking for. A bit overpriced but that's because it is in the French Quarter. I would definitely go back. Don't listen to the rude tourists they're just disrespectful and have no regard for anyone but themselves. Please do not let these ignorant people deter you from a great establishment. There's nothing wrong with that place but there is something wrong with many those tourists. Their rudeness, enthocentrism, and anglocentrism are just a couple.

The shop itself is very cool, filled with all sorts of trinkets and voodoo. We came to get a reading from the psychic and we're excited. However, I have to say it was disappointing. I paid 90 bucks for myself and my boyfriend. We went in seperately and realized afterwards the man had said pretty much word for word the same thing to us. We're both impaths, stretched too thin at work, with a dead relative following us around. The staff was friendly and helpful, but the reading seems like a hoax. Go for the goods, not the reading.

I had a great visit the guy in the back was very helpful and patient not just with me but the drunk idiots in and out of the store....which would drive me up a wall. had a reading at both shops Miles at the first one wash eahhhh.... seemed generic.... the next day I had one by a guy named Darren at the sister shop and it was REALLY on point with literally everything... IN DETAIL...dude was just on it knew what he was doing and dealing with. I even did my own cards a week later at home and got some of the EXACT same cards/warnings...etc...and my outcome and situation was exactly as I was told. Darren is worth the money....sure its a bit touristy but if you know what your doing / wanting its rad.

I visited New Orleans for the first time in May of this year. Unfortunately, I only had one weekend to spend there, but I was determined to spend some time and money in this store before we left. I was perfectly fine with the cluttered, over-packed feel. I was fine with the "no pictures" policy. I was even fine with the fact that everything in the store was overpriced. What I was not prepared for was the rudeness of the staff. I was browsing (and if you've seen pictures or been inside, you know there's stuff EVERYWHERE) and a necklace caught my eye. I reached up to touch it, and an employee who was sitting on a stool very close to me YELLED at me in this CROWDED store, "DON'T TOUCH THE OFFERINGS." From where I was standing, at the side of this display, I couldn't see the sign. There was no way I could have known that this was an offering. I COULDN'T SEE THE SIGN. Nonetheless, I apologized profusely, and tried to explain the situation. The employee, who was just sitting there, guarding the offerings, I might add, wouldn't even look at me. A question for the employees of this establishment: Why was it necessary to yell? This guy was less than five feet from me. It would have been just as easy to say, "Ma'am, please don't touch the offerings.Thank you." Or to have at least accepted my apology, like a decent human being would. I was so upset, and disappointed, and embarrassed, that I couldn't even speak. I almost dropped $50 dollars on a Tarot card reading there before this happened, but luckily, after I left the store, I found a lovely young woman who gave me a SPECTACULAR reading for $20 in Jackson Square. Honestly, because of the staff and the prices, it's really not worth it. There are so many better places in New Orleans to spend your time.

We went into the shop and intended to spend a significant sum of money. Unfortunately the woman at the front counter was very rude and unhelpful. We took our money and left.
